It seems like we've been hearing about a Motorola device headed to AT&T codenamed "Dinara" for eons now. A new press shot of this elusive device has now fallen into the hands of The Verge, and it shows a very different handset than the one sharing the same codenamed that was released in China last year.

As you can see, this device is definitely running Ice Cream Sandwich, with a seemingly tolerable version of Motoblur (or whatever they're calling it these days) slapped on top of it.

S Voice is Samsung's entry into the fledgling "virtual assistant" market currently occupied by Siri, Evi, Speaktoit Assistant, Vlingo, and a handful of others. The Galaxy S III rom leaked earlier today, and while most of the stuff in it is broken and completely useless without the version of Touchwiz it's meant to run on, S Voice is a perfect combination of being interesting AND working. So we're going to take a look at it on my Galaxy Nexus, which is currently running vanilla (well, AOKP) 4.0.4.

Hey kids! Looking for an early taste of the new Touchwiz? Well you're in luck! A leaked Galaxy S III ROM is out in all it's bandwidth crushing glory! A whopping 800MB download awaits those eager to get their hands on Samsung's latest.

The Galaxy S III and its new version of Touchwiz will make about a million additions to Android. Somewhere in this download are things like S-Voice (a Siri-style virtual assistant), Pop-up Play (a floating video window), and Smart Stay (which uses the front facing camera to refresh the screen timeout), just to name a few.

It's nothing new for images or specs of a device to leak prior to its announcement, but this time it does dash the hopes of some Android fans to bits. The Samsung SPH-L300 for Sprint was first leaked in a user profile that lacked any real information. It was put forth that this could be the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S III already in testing, but if this new leak is to be believed, this is a completely different and thoroughly mid-range device.

Back in mid-March, we gave Rezound owners their first taste of Ice Cream Sandwich. Now, we've gotten our hands on a newer build (3.13.605.7, Android 4.0.3) that should fix several of the quirks that were present in our previous leak, as well as bring new radios to the table. I can actually feel the anticipation here, so let's get to it.

Update: It turns out that this doesn't include new radios after all.

Giving T-Mo customers a few things to look forward to in the coming months, a roadmap of planned release/update dates leaked earlier today, revealing the proposed dates for several new device launches, as well as dates on which users can expect updates to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Before we take a look at the leaked screenshot, though, it's worth noting that these dates are of course subject to change, especially considering this chart wasn't meant for public viewing.

Well, what do you know - another Galaxy S III leak! Only this time, it's directly from the source. You see, the Galaxy S III has made an appearing in Samsung's own program used to manage its mobile devices, called Kies.

GS3-3 GS3-4

This basically verifies two bits of information: the device name and model number. There have been rumors that Samsung may call it something different and make it more of an incremental upgrade to the S II, but unless there's a change of heart between now and the release, it looks like it's officially going to be called the GSIII.

Remember way back in December when T-Mo hinted an Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC Amaze? Almost five months later, the page has not been updated and an official software update has not been released. Thanks to veteran XDA user Football, however, Amaze owners can download a leaked version of the official ICS update. Considering that the Amaze recently got S-Off capability, it's looking like users have a lot to be excited about this week.

Anyone who reads Android Police knows that we generally spend a lot more time debunking rumors and leaks than we do actually reporting them as valid news. With that said, this could be the best look we've seen at the upcoming Galaxy S III yet (if Samsung chooses to stick with that name, of course). While this is most definitely a real device, it's possible that it could be something different than the GSIII altogether, though I honestly doubt that Sammy would pack this kind of hardware into anything other than its highest-end flagship:

  • 4.6-inch 1280x720 Super AMOLED display
  • 1.4GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 16GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • NFC
  • 2,050mAh battery
  • Android 4.0

Okay, okay.
